Overall, meh describes my experience in this class. If possible, take this course at Camosun. Can be confusing at times. Textbook is more helpful than the slides. The preamble for the final exam was helpful though.

Read the book and do the study guide questions. Dont go to lecture, it s a waste of time and only tends to confuse the easily read material.

Emma is an amazing prof!!!! Shes really funny and laid back and tries to (and does) make lecture interesting. If you ever are confused GO TO OFFICE HOURS!! she is soo helpful and really tries to help everyone (she had office hours everyday!) Go to lecture, pay attention, take notes beforehand, do ALL of the homework questions and you'll be golden!

Honestly, she was very mediocre. Her lectures were terribly boring, very confusing, and it's hard to keep track of where she is in explaining concepts. That being said, her midterms and final were fair. I probably would have done better had I not gone to lectures and just learnt the material on my own.

Pretty good prof, but she often confuses herself in lecture. Lectures not mandatory and often not needed. Posts slides online.

So Emma liked making funny racial comments and probably blasphemed a lot. But overlooking those things she did well in teaching the material. If you want to succeed read her slides, do study guide questions and practise midterm and final questions. It will be an easy A for you.

ECON 103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

One of the most unprofessional and disrespectful professor I have seen out of the 40 courses I have taken at UVic. I seriously wonder, who let her address 600 students with that attitude. Her notes are full of errors and classes are boring. She makes r@cist comments, and makes fun of lower income groups. She has a short career with this attitude.

Emma is super chill. Let people do the make up exam because they had Kanye tickets. I swear there is no need at all to go to lecture. Stopped going completely after first semester, still kepy my A-. She posts everything; all the notes, readings, study questions, sample exams and bascially the exact breakdown of types of questions for the exams.

I found Emma to be a great prof. She was very clear on what would be tested on, and gave lots of practice question that accurately reflected the level tested on the midterms/final. Lectures can be boring, but she acknowledges that and goes makes most lectures interesting and funny. A good grade is very doable if you do the work.

Emma was pretty good . Although her jokes were sometimes offensive. All in all she delivered and if you pay attention to her slides and visited her during office hours to explain stuff. It will be one of your favorite classes

I cannot find a better teacher in my mind. Her lecture is interesting and clear, and she also do good in her slides, with her slides you do not even need a textbook. Her exam is fair, if you work hard then you can get a good mark. She is also a very nice friend. I don't understand why some people rate a low mark for a wonderful teacher like Emma.

SUPER boring class!!! Couldn't be there for 50 minutes wihtout almost falling asleep! Talks with no pauses, really monotone. Midterms are not that hard, but there are some tricky questions (she says she doesn't trick students on the midterms but she DOES). Awful class...... Wouldn't take it if I had a chance.

Econ 313 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Emma is very clear and makes the theory very engaging and relates it to everyday topics, often environmental, with fantastic rants. She is the best teacher I have had at UVIC, very approachable with an open door. Tests are easy if you look at practice exams and problem sets, nothing unexpected in this class except the quality of teaching!

ECON313 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Emma is one of the best econ professors I've had. She obviously puts a lot of time into lecture, slide and problem set prep, which are pretty much all you need to get a stellar grade. She's funny and is available for extra help almost literally every day (and is helpful!). She doesn't make the class easy, but do the work and you'll be rewarded.

She explains everything in painful detail to help us, but sometimes it's overwhelming. I just did the study guide questions, her posted questions and sample exams over and over and I got an A-. The readings were painful too, but that's just what economics is. She's a helpful prof, but annoyingly disorganized too.

Emma is a very intelligent prof, but she is not very good at turning complex ideas into understandable material. Sometimes I feel like she makes the concepts even more complicated. I like her personality, she's funny and a little bit sassy, not like other female profs I've had. Do her problem sets over and over again, and you'll be fine.
